Hope Adds Two to Faculty Two additions have been made to the Hope College faculty for the second semester, according to Dean William Vander Lugt. Miss Elizabeth Koch has joined the faculty as instructor of biology and Stanley Harrington will •be instructor of art. Before coming to Hope, Miss Koch worked on her Ph.D in genetics at Northwestern University. She received her B.S. degree from Mount Union College, Alli-

ance, 0., and previously taught junior high science and English in the Elyria, 0 . public schools Harrington, a native of Holland, Mich, received h i s A.B. degree from Hope in 1958 and his Master of Fine Arts degree from the State University of Iowa in 1961. From Sept., 1961 to June, 1963, he was chairman of the Art Department of Lake Forest High School, Lake Forest, 111. In the fall of 1963 he returned to Iowa for additional study.

Subtle Discrimination Practiced by Christians Whether racial prejudice, subtle or overt, exists on Hope's campus was the problem discussed Tuesday night at the second meeting of FOCUS (Focus On Communica-, lion and Understanding among Students». Alan Jones, steering committee head opened the meeting by raising the question among the nearly two dozen students present whether the situation at Hope involved actual prejudice or simply a condition of unfamiliarity and misunderstanding between the races. Hal Huggins, freshman, remarked that he thought any prejudice on campus was subtle, not pbvious. It was agreed that prejudice occurred most frequently in dating relationships or friendships involving both sexes, with various women students commenting that head residents had sometimes interfered in such relationships. Doug Smith, junior, said that "the public Negro image" is often a result of stereotyped, cold statistics regarding cerain underprivileged areas. "We tend to identify Negroes with slums," he remarked. Racial prejudice has been most

cutting, it was revealed, where African students were involved, causing Africans to hesitate to involve themselves in relationships "where we mght not 'be wanted," stated one student present. Parental taboos, social stigma and a fear of "the loss of cultural identity if the races should become mixed" were cited as reasons hindering racial social integration, and lack of understanding of different cultures was indicated as one of the stumbling-blocks to friendship among various foreign groups at Hope. "We demand that the different cultures represented here become just like us," commented one student. "We want them to laugh at our jokes, enjoy our particular kind of fun, and seek out our company; and if they don't, we call them clannish and ill-adjusted." " P e r h a p s , " remarked s e n i o r Dave Dunn, "the problem lies in the fabled Typical Hope College Mind; it's too typical! We're afraid to be different." Jones expressed enthusiasm for the group's future. The third meeting of FOCUS is scheduled for March 3 in the Kletz lounge.

'Rhinoceros' To Accent Festival Eugene lonesco's "Rhinoceros" will be the dramatic beginning of Hope's Fine Arts Festival, now in the final stages of planning for its April 30, May 1 and 2 occurance. The Performing Arts Company of University of Michigan will bring the absurd morsel to campus. Thursday, April 30, has a 3 p.m. and an 8:15 perforrriance scheduled for Holland High school's auditorium. Productions will be f r e e of charge to Hope students and personnel. Friday, May 1, contains a variety of evening activities. An original one-act play will be produced in the Little Theatre. Director David Karsten has not yet selected the play and is still eager for student conributions. Stravinsky's speaking opera, "The Soldier's Tale," as well as his "Cantata for Women's voices" will be presented in Snow Auditorium at the same time. Also on the evening's agenda is the usual May Day Formal. It has been suggested that this activity be constructed as a "Bal des Arts" this spring with couple in costume.

A symposium will consume Saturday afternoon, placing a painter, a sculptor and a print maker in discussion of their vocations and attitudes. Participants have not as yet b e e n confirmed by the Fine Arts Committee. Selections from the works of these artists will be on display for two

weeks previous to the festival. "We also hope to have several suburb works of modern art on display in the President's home," stated Dr. Edward Savage, chairman of the festival committee. Friday night's d r a m a t i c and musical performances will be repeated on Saturday night.

AWS Modifies Fresh Rules Associated Women Students Council has announced changes in dormitory regulations as approved at their meeting Feb. 19. The major change results from the freshman proposal for amendment to the lights-out rule. The following change will be in effect upon announcement next week; frosh women may request two light cuts per week; time stipulations and requests for additional light cuts will be granted at the discretion of the Resident Advisors. "The amendment is enacted specifically to allow extended study

time," said Arlene Axends, council president. Following further discussion with freshman women, head residents and council members Linda De Witt, vice - president; Mary Kay Paalman, secretary; Trudy Van Dyke, treasurer; Rosemary Piersma, Mary Diephouse, Bert Kirkpatrick, Sharon Dykema, Ginger Kryger, Alison Beck and Linda Selander. Miss Arends stated the following amendment: "Lounges will be open to men students from breakfast until 8 a.m. besides the regular hours stated in the AWS Handbook."

Warner to Demonstrate Old Instruments Robert A. Warner, professor of music and curator of the Stearns Collection of musical instruments will present a lecture-demonstration of ancient music on historical instruments Sunday at 4:00 p.m. in Snow Auditorium. Warner, educated at Iowa State Teacher's College and Eastman School of Music, received a Doctor of Philosophy degree from the University of Michigan where he presently teaches. Having a special interest in antique musical instruments, he learned to play the tenor viol and gave his students instruction on the instrument. Warner now directs "The Consort," an ensemble of voices, viols and other instruments organized to present concerts of historic music. He is currently engaged in preparing John Jenkins' seven threepart "Francies-Divisions" for pub. lication. This 17th century music has previously been available in only three manuscripts. Warner is a member of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, Kappa Delta Pi, Phi Sigma Mu, American Musicological Society, Music Teachers' Nation Association, American Association of University Professors and Music Library Association. The program will open with a demonstration of the cornetto, serpent and ophicleide by Consort member William Hettrick III. Following this soprano Letitia Garner and the broken Consort com-

posed of recorders, crumhorns. portative organ, viols, percussion, and vocies will perform six selections: "Ductia" and "Motet: Alle Psallite," (anonymous, 13th C.); Gilles Binchois' "Hymn: Veni creator spiritus;" Michael Praetorius' chorale: "Wo Gott zum Haus nicht gibt sein Gunst;" and the anonymous carol "Hail Mary, Full of Grace." The Consort of Viols will perform four selections: Alfonso Ferrabosco's "Fancy in C Minor;" John Dowland's "Flow My Tears," accompanied by Miss Garner; Thomas Thompkins' "Alman" and John

Jenkins' "Fancy in A Minor." The final portion of the program will be a solo with continuo. Sue Cowden, baroque flutist, with a harpsichord and tenor viol will present Benedetto Marcello's "Son. ata XII in G Major" in two movements — largo and allegro. In conclusion Miss Garner with the harpsichord and tenor viol will perform Claudio Monteverdi's Madrigal, Book VII: "Tempo la c e t r a . " Since there is a limited number of seats available the audience is requested to arrive early. There will be no reserved seats. No admission wiH be charged.

It is fascinating to watch more and more politicians become candidates for the Republican Presidential nomination as it becomes less and less likely that a Republican will win. What's more, as the field grows larger it often seems that the interest of most citizens in the Presidential horserace decreases. It is a great pleasure for this column to report the candidacy of yet another eager politician whom no one knows or cares about—Marvin Kitman of Leonia. N.J. Kitman is news managing editor of Monocle, a quarterly political satire. He is planning to file the 100 signatures necessary to enter the New Hampshire Presidential primary, he says. "I will go to New Hampshire." he has said, "as soon as skiing conditions improve. or before the Jan. 10 filing date, whichever comes first." In deciding to leave his job as editor to run for President, Kitman commented, "I'd rather be President than write." He has ask id Sherman Adams to be his campaign manager because, he says, "I am a firm believer in free enterprise in the White House, as elsewhere in this country." Kitman has issued a press release, parts of which follow: "The voters of New Hampshire

I wouldn't be surprised if more people came to see me campaign than Goldwater. because a lot rf the folks in New Hampshire have never seen a real J e w . " With such a fine platform, more and more Americans are bound to feel that Mr. Kitman is the ideal compromise candidate if the convention becomes tied up and cannot choose between George Lincoln Rockwell and Norman Thomas. Anyone interested in supporting Mr. Kitman for President is asked to report to Shields Cottage for an appointment.

WTAS to Reorganize Programming Peter Paulsen, program director for WTAS, has announced an expansion in programming for the campus. On weekdays from 3 p.m. until 5 p.m. WTAS will be broadcasting "for your late afternoon pleasure." Paulsen stated that he is at the present time looking for people who do not eat in the dining halls and would be interested in broadcasting from 5:30 to 6:30 in order that WTAS would be broadcasting

from 3 p.m. until 1 a.m. during the week. A technical advance m a d e by WTAS is that in the future all advertisements will be recorded on tape and played over the air rather than being done alive. This is being done to m a k e WTAS programming more professional. A number of features designed to give more variety to Hope's radio station were also announced by program Director Paulsen. Be-

"is going quite well, but I wish more students would take advantage of it." This program is one in which students tutor other students free of charge.

He said, "As long as I have been at Hope, they have been talking about something like this. The successful planning of this event will be Earning Money In Europe a big first for student government at Hope." However, it must be kept in mind that the Student Senate's activities have not been entirely social. The aforementioned activities of the Intellectual Affairs Committee are examples.

JOBS IN EUROPE

No experience is necessary and wages r a n g e to $400 monthly. F o r a complete prospectus, travel g r a n t and job application returned airmail, send $1 to Dept.

In spite of this, freshman Senator Bob Donia remarked concerning the Senate's activities: "Senate has been sufficiently active; however it has spent too much time on social activities. I feel they have been too much of a conductor rather than supervisor of these activities." He continued that he would rather see Senate become involved with "the really big questions around here." The direction of the Senate's policy was also discussed by President Mouw. One disappointment to him was that he was afraid that, at least at this time. Senate meetings could not be used for discussion of "problems and conditions bigger than this campus. There are too many decisions which must be made for the campus. Maybe we'll develop this," he said, "but at the present it is something which is impractical." Another issue pressuring the Senate and the campus is the calendar. In the present semester is the sing, fraternity rush, the Fine Arts Festival, as well as usual activities. Vice-President Mary Klein said that the system of the date book had to be changed. Students have complained about tooth the crowded condition of the calendar as well as the inaccuracy of the main calendar outside Dean Harvey's office. Calendar reform was considered

by the Senate in the first semester, but the proposed reform was turned down. This action was one of the few things which was "handled badly" by Senate. Senate's Role Peter Paulsen has stated that senate's role might be a quite different one than is expected. "Maybe student life is a pendulum." he said. "I think maybe we're swinging from apathy to where we should get more responsibility. Right now the student body tends to be shackled with too many rules and regulations which don't amount to a row of pins. Students a r e being given an education rather than getting it. Student Senate, more than any other organization, should he working to get the shackles removed so that they don't worry about us as much as they do." Aside from these questions of Senate's future plans and direction, senators and officers alike have been pleased with its performance during the past s e m e s t e r ^ Senate Success? Senator Bob Anderson feels that "Senate has done a good job. We have gone from the beginning of the year with everyone beating on drums to some small work done by the m e m b e r s . " He went on to maintain that "the lack of feeling of responsibility on the part of the representatives is the main

weakness. " Vice-Presdent Mary Klein felt that "Considering it is our first year, I think we have done well. Ths year's Senate is much more interested and willing to work." She was also high in her praise of President Mouw: "He's done a very fine job. He has put in a lot of time and has put the new constitution into effect well." What has been the reason for the Senate's success? Some of these members have felt that it was the representatives and officers. Treasurer Bruce Neckers, however, attributes Senate's success to the constitution. "The big change is in the new constitution," he said. " F o r the first time we have interested people who want to be on the Senate. This is due to the new method of election. We have no more trouble with attendance, and the work of the Excutive Committee has streamlined the whole process of legislation. They dispense with all the trivial matters and make the Senate meetings themselves better." But all of these senators realize the tremendous amount of work which lies before them. President Mouw said. "There is so much more to do; and any student who feels that the job is finished should talk to President VanderWerf."

f

Student Court's Progress Reviewed by Susan Spring Monday nights (and the first hours of Tuesday mornings) usually find seven Hopeites deep in the corners of the Senate chambers on Graves* ground floor, enveloped in discussions of Right and Wrong. Unlike the other frequent discussions amongst students on these two fair city blocks, the decisions which the seven reach do turn to action. Administratively backed, student - respected, the newborn Student Court has conferred over the immediate fates of 19 persons involved in nine cases over the past semester. The Court is a product of last spring's redefining of student responsibility, its jurors being selected by Senate president David Mouw and approved by a Senate vote last September. Chief justice Dick Vander Borgh is backed by six students who meet the qualifications of an "above - average grade point and sense of moral responsibility.** The group is composed of seniors Arlene Arends, Herb Tillema and Karen Voskuil as well as juniors Paul Bast, Jeff Eubank and Kathleen Verduin. Court Cases Cases handled by the court have involved drinking (four times), shoplifting (twice), an instance of damage caused during frosh orientation,- a complaint against the reckless driving of a Hope student by a town resident and a complaint by Slater Food Service on misuse of a meal ticket. "Those who have been sent to us haven*t been surprised at being accused of breaking college policy,*' stated Vander Borgh. "All defendants have admitted guilt. The court has worked quietly but effectively in investigation, interviews and decisions. There are no quick decisions; court members are under vow not to allow outlet of

H t p e College a s d w

Butler Investigates College Ethics by B r y c e Butler Our present article is an attempt to find out what the attitude of those in authority at our college is toward sex and to see if this attitude can play a p a r t in the individual's search for an acceptable moral code. For this, we interviewed Dean J a m e s Harvey, Dean Isla Van E e n e n a a m and the house-mothers of several of the women's d o r m s . According to Dean Harvey "College policy is an understanding. T h e r e is an a g r e e m e n t as to proper conduct." Is this true? Do those in authority here generally a g r e e on what is " p r o p e r conduct" and if so, what is the content of this a g r e e m e n t ? More important, why is this conduct " p r o p e r ? " Rather surprisingly, I think, there is general a g r e e m e n t about what should and should not be done by a couple prior to m a r r i a g e . It was universally agreed that pre-marital intercourse, even between pinned or engaged couples, is wrong. The reasons given for this were quite s t a n d a r d as well. They were put best by Dean Harvey. "Sex." said Harvey, " i s holy and is reserved for m a r r i a g e . (This means> s e x is ordained by God for uniting a husband and wife in m a r r i a g e . " Psychological Laws Harvey also said that "God has created certain psychological laws that govern the universe, and (all peopled are under these laws." As an e x a m p l e of this fact, he said t h a t "in Samoa, where sex is taken for g r a n t e d , they have sacrificed a depth that we find in marriage here." Several of the house mothers have given f u r t h e r content to these 4 'psychological l a w s . " Mrs. Mary Tellman of Phelps hall said, "Statistics show that c h a n c e s for a durable m a r r i a g e are higher among those who have not indulged before m a r r i a g e . " Mrs. Laura Markert of Durfee hall gave a reason for this. " M a r r i a g e is a relationship based on mutual respect and trust. Respect between man and wife is los f if there a r e prem a r i t a l relations." Mrs. Mary E m m a Young of Van Vleck hall sees the main psychological danger as a compromise of discipline, which is a basic need in the m a r r i a g e relationship. All these d a n g e r s in pre-marital sexual intercourse, while they might possibly be seen to prove (hat it is not the will of God, have nothing to do with sex as a strictly m o r a l issue. Material of an explicitly moral n a t u r e is surprisingly slim, although this is probably because the policy takes from the rules and m e a s u r e s that have been taken to meet a succession of particular issues. Mrs. Tellman said simply " ( P r e - m a r i t a l intercourse > is spiritually wrong—cont r a r y to our Christian s t a n d a r d s and teachings." Harvey says " t h e Bible forbids pre-marital intercourse in fornication." Divine I m p e r a t i v e Apparently, according to Mrs. Markert the prohibition against intercourse before m a r r i a g e is a simple, divine imperative, standing alone. Although she was the only one that explicitly voiced this sentiment, I think I detected it in the attitude of the others. Because of a prejudice I brought to the interviews, the questioning was specifically geared to find out if the prohibitions on sex sprung from religious concern or social motivation. In every c a s e I found that Christian concern was definitely involved. Another a t t e m p t to distinguish Christian from social concern was m a d e in the e f f o r t to determine what the attitude would be to one who had broken the rules here, specifically, a couple who "had to get m a r r i e d . " Harvey gave the official college position. In these . cases, said Harvey, the couple is dealt with as a unity. If possible the m a n is encouraged to stay in college, since he needs the education to raise the child. The woman.

however, is asked to withdraw. This is not a disciplinary m e a s u r e , but again the concern is for the people involved. The college feels strongly, s a y s Harvey, that the mother needs some time to prep a r e for motherhood. Another rule, which is enforced in all cases, regardless of m a r i t a l status, says that a pregnant woman may not register for a semester that would include her fifth month of pregnancy. This is because there a r e dangers to a pregnant woman in the normal, crowded college situation. It also precludes the danger of a student's delivering during the s e m e s t e r . Usually, however, if a girl is discovered to be pregnant during the last weeks of a semester, she is allowed to finish the term. If. after a year or so. a girl w a n t s to continue her education here, she is allowed to. a f t e r it has been determined what arrangements have been m a d e for caring for the child during the day. All of this seems to m e to be very reasonable, and in a spirit of Christian concern.

t h e r e is no way of knowing that a giv^en boy's sense of propriety will indeed stop him before intercourse. For another thing, it is not necessarily true that a given individu a l ' s sense of propriety has originated in the beliefs of society as a whole. The particular groups t h a t shape a person's sense of what is proper m a y be neurotically

The American Sexual Revolution

Attitude on Campus In Mrs. M a r k e r t ' s answer to the question, " w h a t is the attitude toward a pregnant girl." a certain self-rightousness on the part of the students could be detected. At first, she said, they rally around the girl, to help her. However, the girl may not know how to react and if she displays a bravado or a feeling t h a t what she did was not wrong, they "drop her like a hot potato." The feeling is (and 1 think Mrs. Markert shares it> thai a sin has been committed, and the sinner should feel properly contrite. It is in not feeling guilty, r a t h e r than in the act itself, that a girl risks social ostracism. This might look like Christianity, but I don't think it is. The reason for one Christian to forgive another or for a Christian to forgive a non-Christian is not t h a t the " s i n n e r " declares himself a s such but that we a r e all sinful and should accept others as h u m a n beings, the s a m e as ourselves, because " t h e r e , but for the grace of God. go 1." This, however, is not a criticism of our attitude toward sex, as much as it is a criticism of our Christianity. The sexual morality voiced by those I interviewed was in every case tied to at least a conception of the will of God. Lines Drawn 1 asked several of the people about a question that has intrigued me in this m a t t e r of sexual morality. "As soon as you say that sexual intercourse before m a r r i a g e is wrong, while holding hands is all right, you necessitate drawing a line somewhere. Where would you draw that line?" 1 received a variety of answers to this question, none of them really satisfactory. Mrs. Markert said it was up to the girl to draw the line, in accordance with her private sense of modesty. This m a y be, in fact, what happens in m a n y cases but leaving the s t a n d a r d s up to " t h e girl's sense of modest y " s e e m s somewhat suspect. For one thing, if one is to say anything objective about what is wrong — even that pre-marital intercourse is wrong, then one h a s limited the f r e e play of this "sense of m o d e s t y . " One has really d r a w n the line oneself for someone else, because he has said: "Your sense of modesty m a y determine what is right again only if it a g r e e s with my sense of propriety." The real criticism, however, is that in basing what is right on a sense of modesty, we a r e going to society, which instills this sense, for a vital part of the content of our morality. The s a m e things wrong with, making the girl's sense of modesty determine where they should stop before intercourse are wrong with making t h e boy's sense of propriety the arbiter. For one thing,

negative, or overly lenient. E v e n assigning that one's sense of propriety represents the attitude of the majority of society, is this necessarily good? I don't think so. For one thing, Christianity judges society, it doesn't go along with its dictates. It would seem s t r a n g e indeed if a society that glibly talks about over-kill, that enforces segregation, and condones hatred of certain groups could be trusted in a m a t t e r as delicate, personal and important as sexual morality. F o r another thing, this whole series arises out of the failure of an ethics based on society's dem a n d s . As I tried to indicate in m y first article, the basis of society's morality is not only non Christian, but morally suspect in itself. Basing sexual s t a n d a r d s on w h a t e v e r the individual m a y have gleaned from his social environm e n t is inexcusably irresponsible, both from a Christian and f r o m a philosophical point of view.

experience frustrations of this nature. varying intensities, frequently in our normal activities. If all this frustration is detrimental to a relationship, then it may be argued that the only safe plan is for couples in love not to see. write to. or even think of each other. If, on the other hand, some frustration is qualitatively different than other frustration, how is the individual to find out where the qualitative difference is? He may resort to trial and e r r o r ; that is do something that leads him either to intercourse or to 'beginning the destruction of his relationship with his girl. This is not only impractical and ridiculous, but it is also i m m o r a l s o m e w h e r e in the process. On the other hand, he m a y become an expert, and benefit from the trial and e r r o r of others. 1 doubt if the a v e r a g e student, interested in forming a sexual ethic, has either the time, facilities or inclination to pursue this course. Another problem is that some couples have done things that incurred whatever greatest kinds of frustration there a r e and their relationship has come out of it whole. This can be possible, since the " p h y s i c a l " position is based on a statistical basis (a percentage of undesirable cases as opposed to a percentage of detrimental cases». Thus the statistical conclusion cannot be used to draw the line in all cases. Assuming sufficient will power to withstand resulting frustration, rather than intercourse, would anyone who is going with a girl be able to s a y just how m u c h frustration would result in the deterioration of that relationship? Isn't it possible, a s some believe, that a m a t u r e couple can simply recognize that they will be frustrated and learn to live with it? As long as petting is involved, couldn't a couple r e l e a s e the tension by petting to climax? This is not a defense of such activity, but only a possible criticism of the "psychological" position of drawing the line before petting. No Lines? This article is not intended as a polenic against the placing of the line w h e r e Dean Harvey has drawn it. I a m simply trying to prove that no hard and fast line can be drawn, not even Dean Harvey's. Moreover, the individual

cannot even draw a line for himself f r o m what Harvey h a s said. If we are to conclude that psychology. as presented by Harvey, at least can't draw a line for all cases and that Mrs. M a r k e r t ' s and Mrs. Young's efforts to draw lines ended in the individual doing what a nonChristian society lets him feel comfortable doing, where a r e we left? I am left with a feeling than no line can be drawn for all cases, at least with our present knowledge. The answers I received are, I feel, representational of the thinking of those who have tried to place their line and defend it. Why is the fact that these lines cannot be defended (or in a very real way, even drawn) so important? I feel it is important because in the college situation, where m a t u r e people with a large m e a s u r e of privacy a r e engaging in m a t u r e relationships, the most important thing a sexual ethic can do is to draw a line. A person may be a t t r a c t e d to a particular moral system for a variety of good or bad reasons. The fact is, however, that in the back of a c a r the thing that m a t ters is where, with how much force, the line has been drawn. Another thing that m a t t e r s is how responsibly the line has been drawn. The importance of this m a v not be apparent in the car, but if there are any ultimate Christian s t a n d a r d s against which a t t e m p t s at Christian ethics must be judged it is important that a given ethic be responsible. Haphazard Lines In this sense, the approaches I ' have mentioned above have failed. I feel they have allowed their lines to be drawn haphazardly. Christianity is big enough, and deep enough not to need filling in by socially defined senses of propriety and psychological frustration levels. A truly Christian ethic would be all Christian and one might as well follow Hugh Hefner down the p r i m r o s e path as to walk down a Christian road to a line drawn by non-Christian forces. Next week, Charles Menning will present the sexual ethic expressed by the Reformed Church. On the • following week I will approach what I consider to be a sexual ethic truly and completely a f t e r Christ, by giving content to the basic moral injunction to "love your neighbor as yourself," in a sexual context.

Petting

Be A College Town Doll

Harvey said that the college would draw its line, for the behavior it would allow in students, at petting, defined as erotic, sexual stimulation, to say that the individual should also draw the line here. He felt that there a r e certain acts, which are included in the t e r m petting, that a r e in fact preludes to intercourse. Because of this, they either lead to intercourse, or, if this natural culmination is denied they lead to a frustration that can only be detrimental to the relationship involved. Therefore pelting cannot be seen as a legitimate expression of and contribution to the pre-marital relationship; which does not admit intercourse. E i t h e r the petting is fulfilled and the injunction against intercourse is violated or the petting is not fulfilled and the relationship suffers f r o m the resulting frustration. All of this is fine, except for a few things. For one thing, the animalistic, deterministic attitude shown above can be reduced to absurdity. With man considered purely as an animal, it may be demonstrated that something as innocent as kissing is a prelude to intercourse, since the body m a y m a k e the physiological p r e p a r a tions for sex (increased respiration, faster pulse rate, etc.) under this relatively mild form of stimulation. Because we a r e p r e p a r e d for intercourse, obviously a certain amount of f r u s t r a t i o n does t a k e place and, indeed, all of us

Greek Week

'High Noon': Art with Bravado by Lynne Vande Bunte "High Noon" is a compromise between Americanism and good art. The conclusion is phony, Grace Kelly as Mrs. Kane is insipid ami unconvincing, the "schmalz" is at times thick (the marshal's last will and testament is really too much) and there is plenty of shoot ing, horses and typical Western swaggering. But as a whole the film overcomes all these terrible obstacles and becomes artistically great. The presence of time is forced on us by the constant ticking of clocks, the continual reference to time in conversation, the approach of the train, the turning wheels, the wailing. Brilliant intercutting shows us the character development, and as the train whistle finally sounds we are Teady for the denouement of the four major strands of the plot: those involving Mrs. Kane, Mrs. Rameirz, Kane and Frank Miller and Friends. The characterization is thoroughly unforgettable. The foil for Mrs. Kane—Mrs. Rameirz— is so powe r f u l that Mrs. Kane (Grace Kelly )'s idealism is silly from the first. When she finally helps her husband (surprised into staying with her husband by a gunshot seconds before the train leaves) it seems a clever bit of plot re-arranging so that they will live (as we know) happily ever after. Mrs. Rameirz is far better suited to the melancholy, disillusioned, but uncorruptible Marshal (Gary Cooper). However, the marshal no longer cares for her, so she has taken up with his deputy (Lloyd Bridges), a strutting boy who is trying to be a man like the marshal. It is a curious twist in a western to have the marshal savagely fighting his deputy. These four major characters serve as foils for each other, but are admirably supported by other characters, made indelibly precise iby the innuendos of their conversations and the details of the action. Who can forget the station-master, the "functionary" who assures Mrs. Kane that as long as the marshal is in charge everything will be all right and who pointedly addresses the criminals as "sir." And the sly hotel clerk, there to

see the spectacle, caught eavesdropping as he pretends to fix the clock. The coffins. The hat. The money the marshal gives to the man who will fight because he needs to. Or the money he insists on giving the barber: he has become a cynic now. Or the politican addressing the church; when he begins to rant the camera returns to the congregation in which two women again begin to fan themselves, indicating that he is just as uninteresting as the sermon. He pats the marshal on the shoulder, another effective detail. And the clergyman, speaking out of both sides of his mouth, concludes, "I don't know" as his sterile, pitiful church ironically mouths Malachi 4: "For behold, the day cometh, burning like an oven, when all the arrogant and all evildoers will be stubble." And so they are. The marshal does what he

" m u s t " even though he hates it. He doesn't know why. It is almost the Greek relentless necessity before which even gods must bow. He weeps, he fears, he trusts and is continually betrayed, but is unfathomably kind to the end. He revives the deputy who has just tried to kill him; in fact he has had trouble convincing himself to fight his friend at all. He calls out to the murderer before shooting at him in order to give him a fair chance. He apologizes in a quavering voice for hitting a man. He is an Everyman; forsaken by all, as he falters, wipes his forehead and fingers his gun belt. Here the camera is elevated to show what a petty thing this is and what a cosmic battle he is fighting.

Wombwell Finds Ambiguity In Modernized Play Theme by Thomas Wombwell Jules Dassln's " P h a e d r a " is a real enigma because it is so unreal or so far removed from our experience. And at the same time his production catches the viewer up in the whole experience. Phaedra's story, her predicament. while clothed in modern garb and language, is of another time, another life. One in which a mother is portrayed as falling in love with her stepson, finally bringing about both her and his destruction and in it evoking the problems of duty and pride. One in which a woman's passion consumes all that it touches or that bears her name. One in which ambition and the lust for power come to naught. This is the world of legend. of other people. The we-now-people are different. Their difficulties are the result of neuroses, psychological disorientation with their environment; not the human flaws of pride or lust Their passions are more controlled, more rational: if Phaedra had only thought about the consequences, her social position and her husband's dreams, she would have

sublimated or re-directed her love for Alexis. Their ambitions are usually adequately rewarded: if not financially, spiritually for sure. But this is not Phaedra or her story. Yet we are somehow caught up in her experience. And how is this? Perhaps we are acquainted with Racine's version or at least krfow the story. If this is the case we might be disappointed with Dassin —which need not be necessary if we recognize each piece in its distinctiveness of treatment. Or perhaps we are drawn into the experience by the sheer sense of inevitability suggested in Annas forebodings and Phaedra's little song, "like all Greek songs about love and death." Intuitively we know that the end of it all will not—or should not—be happy. Finally, perhaps we are drawn into the story by the technical brilliance with which it is told. Melina Mercouri is a subtly sensuous Phaedra. Anthony Perkins' Alexis is tender and appropriate. Raf Vallone as Andreas is all the power his ambition of creating a kingdom demands. The movement from place to place is forced by the sounds of power. The fatal love-scene is a masterpiece of cinematography. The lovers' faces (Continued on page 8 )

Kooiker Students Tigelaar, Nyboer To Perform Senior Piano Recital Pianists John Nyboer and Robert Tigelaar, both science m a j o r s and pre-medical students, will present a joint senior recital Monday at 8:45 p.m. in Snow Auditorium. Nyboer will open the program playing Beethoven's ''Sonata in E Minor, Op. 90." Then Tigelaar will perform Bach's "Fantasy in C Minor" and Beethoven's "Rondo in C Major, Op. 51, No. 1." Following this Nylboer will play Liszt's " E t u d e in D Flat M a j o r , " Brahms' "Intermezzo, Op. 116, No. 4" and Dag Wiren's "Improvisationer. Op. 35."

Tigelaar will t h e n perform Chopin's "Ballade in A Flat Major," Debussy's "Danseuses de Delphes" a n d Rachmaninoff's " Et u d e - Tableau, Op. 39, No. 9." The program will be concluded by a two-piano selection, Rachmaninoff's "Suite No. 2, Op. 17." Both pianists are students of Dr. Anthony Kooiker. Nyboer is a member of H-Club and th« Emersonian fraternity. Tigelaar is a member of the Chapel Choir, Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia and the Cosmopolitan Fraternity.

As I was saying . . . In fact there was one girl who had a name that sounded like the name of a boy. Now who can write love poetry in a situation like that? You see, I really don't have trouble deciding what to say. My problem is cutting it down to fit the little bit of space I am alloted. If I wrote about sex I'd get an entire page. I have read that a writer should be a "Seeker of the Truth." I think that will be the unifying element of this column. 1 will expose the truth about everything and everybody, therefore saving mankind from total destruction. I would assume also that it would •bring some degree of satisfaction to me. It surely seems easier than working. But on in the search for truth.

we must conclude that Christianity is not alway understood and quite often not taken seriously but it still is the religion of love and not just the supposed religion of love. Maybe that's why He wanted emphasis to be on Him rather than on the rest of us; there is less chance of being disappointed. Maybe the truth is we take ourselves too seriously. Maybe we should laugh a little. Perhaps get mad and fight a little also. It surely was a good game. One of the best I have ever seen. The fight too. Remember Dave Von Ins? He used to write this column. Dave is kind but he is not always truthful. Have you noticed? He tends to distort things. J u s t last week he said, "Don Kardux asked m e if he could write a few columns in my space. I was of course very eager to let him."

My good friend, please don't be so disturbed. I was at the gabe too and I saw our friends angry and fighting. Christians aren't perfect. Really! Even though some try to give that impression. I think

That statement is not completely fact. In truth, not all of the "quotations" were mine. Actually the encounter was not so casual nor his response so enthusiastic. The process of getting him to agree to

this experiment was long and involved. The chief obstacle was his concern with the "fourth basic need of m a n . " I satisfied that "need" in part by promising to refer to him, mentioning his name at least once in the column and vowing never to attempt a "coup de grace." I mention this vow in public to ease Dave's mind and to remain noble and true in the eyes of my readers. And now my promise. . . . DAVE VON INS Happiness is truly your name in newsprint. So is contentment and security. 1 cannot leave without devoting what I feel is adequate coverage to one of the m a j o r problems of our nation today. The truth is I think Ringo is all right. (England is not threatening the morality of our nation, unless of course you base immorality upon men wearing high heeled shoes and long hair. I agree it's a little silly but sometimes so is Chapel.

This is in response to last week's letter to the anchor concerning the incident at the Hope - Alma basketball g a m e of F e b . 8. In this letter certain questions w e r e raised concerning the implications which this incident had on Christianity and Christian Love. Also the author m a d e a n u m b e r of statem e n t s the validity of which 1 would tend to question. First, the author was concerned with the fact that a fight could start " o v e r such a relatively insignificant event as a m e r e basketball g a m e . " To the participants in the basketball g a m e , it is far f r o m being "relatively insignificant." I know few people that would work h a r d f o r ' t w o or three hours every day for months over something that they considered to be insignificant. Second, the author s t a t e d that who started the fight was not very important. 1 cannot accept this. To have any completed understanding of the events which transpired, one should certainly be a w a r e of the origins of the conflict. The fact that the m a j o r Hope participant in the battle w a s hit twice (with no provocation on his p a r t ) before becoming " p h y s i c a l " h a s great significance as f a r as I a m concerned. Third, the author implied that this fight could have degenerated into a 44 life-or-death s tr uggle," if unchecked. Really now, let's not over d r a m a t i z e the situation. The incident that occurred was far f r o m being even a brawl between t h e two teams. I challange anyone to n a m e more than five individuals (two f r o m Hope and t h r e e from Alma» who w e r e directly involved There were m a n y people on the floor it is true, but most of them were concerned with stopping the fight r a t h e r t h a n perpetuating it. To m e this s a y s much more for the validity of the love-centered Christianity t h a n the fact that t h e r e was a fight says against it. The fact that the fight was unfortunate and was not illustrative of Christian love is m o s t assuredly conceded. T h a t it h a s serious implications concerning t h e validity of love-centered Christianity, I

Coming Events

Dangers of Freedom The child grows up. His early fascination with the intricate complexities of the social machine of rules is replaced either by accepting that m a c h i n e as is— as a p a r t of his life—or by following the itch to take the machine apart to see what makes it tick, what sets it in motion. As college students who believe in m a n ' s responsibility to establish for himself his honest convictions for running his life, based on his own religious or social beliefs, we believe that we should critically disassemble the social machine, and having understood its true nature as much as humanly possible, we m u s t rebuild it, r e j e c t it, or repair it. In this context we a r e studying modern sexual morality. However, the problem is that, having torn the social machine apart and having' found out what sets it spinning, the individual may find, himself too limited to rebuild it. We face the difficulty of human weakness in the desire to live to the tlimit of the h u m a n capabilities. We run the chance of being left with nothing but nihilistic despair and chaos. In critically examining the workings of society's rules on sex. we have begun with a basic belief of how the machine should run; we believe t h a t the moving factor in morality should be religious, based on the God-man relationship viewed in r e g a r d to the man-woman relationship. In such a study we a r e faced with the necessity of

doubt. It h a s always been my conception that Christianity was a religion which did not e n c o u r a g e h u m a n weaknesses but which did provide a r e m e d y for h u m a n failures. Here, in my opinion, lies an essence of Christian Love. After the incident I h e a r d nothing but expressions of regret from the under the c i r c u m s t a n c e s wouid principals involved. The only standard which would dictate regret seem to be Christian Love. The incident was regrettable and it probably does have something to say about h u m a n nature, but I believe last week's letter attached far m o r e significance to t h } a f f a i r than it justly deserved. Ron Te Beest

In response to Tom Wombwell's letter of last week, I would like to say t h a t 1 disagree completely with him about the Alma basketball g a m e . I feel t h a t his r e m a r k s were irrelevant and show that he h a s never experienced w h a t happens to a player out on the floor. Anyone who has played sports, especially basketball, will realize that, to a good player on the floor the g a m e is life and death and s n a p j u d g m e n t s must b e m a d e . After such an intense ball g a m e none of the p l a y e r s were completely themselves and certainly did not have the t i m e to stop and think about every action! I would like to ask Mr. Womb-

learning the true will of God and learning it as individuals seeking for their own convictions r a t h e r than individuals asking for the answers from the social machine. Yet, no m a t t e r how honest our approach to the critical process m a y be. it must be recognized that, once we have, to a t least some measure, torn apart the machine of modern sexual ethics, there will be those who will not share in the desire to rebuild it. There will be those who would r a t h e r find a d v a n t a g e in 'leaving prohibitions aside or who will not find sufficient basis for reconstruction. In other words, in the desire to establish the necessity of individual f r e e d o m to build personal morality we run the risk of establishing license for those who do not wish to accept the responsibility involved. Such a possibility weighs heavily. However, the decision has been m a d e and, in fact, must be made. We must try for the ideal, we must try to reach for the highest possibility of human existence, even if the ideal m a y be perverted by some people. To accept the status quo without question because some will not strive for the ideal is unforgivable. To b e a f r a i d to climb because of the fear of falling is pitiful. So we a r e young, we have ideals, we a r e striving for honest personal beliefs. May God give all who strive to know His truth the strength to follow it to the end. —C.M.

Hope College anchor

To The Hoop by J a m e s Mace On Wednesday morning two men will be well on their way to contributing nearly two million dollars in taxes to their grand old Uncle Sam. These two men, Sonny Liston and Cassius Clay, will have participated in the richest and possibly one of the quickest heavyweight championship fights in history, maybe even surpassing the two Liston Patterson fiascos. For many a moon now young and brash Cassius Clay has be^n clamoring for a go at that "Big Ugly Be a r " Sonny Liston, and under the Miami Beach moon next Tuesday night he will get his chance. However, the fresh but eager "Lip of Louisville" may earn his nights' pay in a big hurry. Most of the experienced men connected with the boxing game rate Liston as an overwhelming favorite, while oddsmakers are giving a big six to one on the champion. Young Mr. Clay's chances are not enhanced either by his tendency to lead with his chin and to keep his hands down at his belt.

WE WILL GLADLY ORDER

However, I don't mean to insinuate that Clay's chances are entirely hopeless. Cassius, undoubtedly, is a good fighter as his 19 victories and 18 knockouts will attest. Clay is also a lot younger than Liston, and he may even go into the ring weighing more than Liston. (Clay is shooting for 221 lbs.) Again, however, this added weight may prove to be a detriment rather than an advantage because the lighter Cassius comes into the ring the faster he will be and the better prepared to go his predicted eight rounds. Oddly enough, one thing that may help Cassius is the fact that he has expostulated so vehemently about himself and about Liston. As Angelo Dundee, Clay's trainer said "Some of this talk must be getting to Liston and only time will tell what effect it has had on h i m . " Yet even with the odds so outlandishly in favor of Liston, more than 60 million Americans will have their attention turned to the encounter in one way or another on the night of Feb. 25. This reporter plans to be one of those 60 million and with dwindling hopes of a good fight, I must say to Clay Backers:

Even Cassius' recent appearances in the ring haven't shown him to be as tremendous as he declares himself to be. His five round knockout of Henry Cooper was as he predicted, but "Old 'Enerey" had Cassius on the canvas in the third round, to the overwhelming joy of the British fight fans. Earlier his victory by decision over Doug Jones showed that he possibly does not have the talent to put away anything more than mediocre fighters.

Kiss your money tenderly. For Cassius Clay should go in three.

Hope Falls to Calvin Knights, 105-71 by Steve De P r e e Calvin's Knights recovered from last season's losses to triumph over Hope by a wide margin of 105-71 in a televised contest played at the Grand Rapids Civic Center last Wednesday evening. It was a successful Homecoming for the fired-up Knights as they corralled the lead almost from the beginning and held tight rein on it for the remainder of the game. A languishing second half lulled the Blue and Orange into ineffectiveness.

A true all-out effort by the Calvin squad made shambles of the Hope attack during the second half. Hope hit only a third of their field goals while the Knights continued TO be consistent. Calvin saw the weaknesses in the Hope defense and poked holes in it to produce the scoring bulge. The Knights con-

stantly worked the ball in close to the basket for the easy shot. Hope was under greater offensive strain so that they were forced to do a good amount of outside shooting.

The first half ended with Calvin on top by a margin of 44-36. Both teams had made a reasonable percentage of their shots from the field. Another factor in the g a m e ' s outcome concerned the Knights' sharp free throw shooting.

Many mental errors frustrated Hope's chances throughout most of the game. Even with this handicap, the Flying Dutchmen did manage to keep within striking distance in scoring during the first half. Ron Venhuizen, Glenn Van Wieren and Clare Van Wieren carried the burden of the pointmaking in the initial half. The Van Wieren brothers were especially effective in the rebounding department against their taller opponents.

Leading the scoring for Hope was J i m Klein with 33, followed by Denny Weener with 20 and Paul Steigenga with 15. Terry Ericson held up Grace with 29 points.

The court, it is easily concluded, is working conscientiously and well. However one m a y also consider the fact that the court h a s not yet been given a situation in which it must decide the guilt of a student: would the flexible structure of justice which the court h a s been building up through these nine cases be consistent enough to enable a firm decision? Question m a y also come in regard to punitive procedures. Is it enough to attempt to guide persons to face their actions, or should more solid punishment be exercised? Thus far, such measures have been rather ineffective, and not firmly observed. One can hopefully recall—Rome, for all its law tablets, wasn't built in a semester.

pointmaking splurge at the start of the second half to make up some of the margin in the score. This shocked the Britons back into a fruitful response that put them back on the winning trail. G a m e scoring honors went to burly Bill Potter who netted a cool 31 markers. He was followed on the Hope ledger by two other players who scored in the double figures. These were Clare Van Wieren with 17 and Glenn Van Wieren who totaled 15. Albion's high scorer was Dave Anspaugh with 26 points.

And the two deaths appear mischaracterized. Alexis, who has concealed his own passion from the time of his arrival in Greece dies screaming, suddenly, violently. But Phaedra, the dynamic rending passion, dies calmly, slowly, deliberately in her sleep. Outside of the possibility of emphasis in contrast, these ends a r e confusing. There is one possible explanation. In Phaedra's confession to her husband, she purges herself and can thus die in peace, though she must die. Alexis in his final abandon expiates for his sins as well. In the final analysis we are left with the perplexity of the unlikelihood of the story and a t the same time the sense of tragic inevitability dramatically brought off. It is perhaps in this ambiguity that the art exists.
